OzHarvest Impact

The NEST Program's comprehensive design provides a unique learning experience that generates sustainable impact and positive results. The flow on and wider social impact from NEST is extensive with the practical skills gained being easily transferred to friends, family and other community members.

A Social Return on Investment (SROI) study undertaken by Bain & Company in late 2016 demonstrated that for every $1 invested into the NEST program, there is an economic return of $9.73.


NEST Program

“We ran a five-week NEST program at a women’s domestic violence shelter...Above all, it was the starting point for deeper connections as the women realised how much they enjoyed cooking and eating together, and they began sharing their own stories of recipes, families and happy times. Through improved nutrition and increased confidence, they were able to bring positive change to other parts of their lives as well.”
